Birthday cards and parties

We had a lovely weekend.... although the weather has really turned today and it is raining and grey and cold!!
We didn't make it to the St George's Day festival, Laura had decided to go to the cinema instead.... so I became Mom the Taxi as usual!! So I managed to get some stitching done on Saturday afternoon. All was quiet in the house just the birds singing as the back door was open, the 2 dogs (mom and dad's was staying all weekend) were asleep, Stuart was on the computer, Laura out and Becky in her room. So I started and finished a small letter J with a butterfly for my Aunt's birthday in May. Sorry haven't taken a photo yet so will have to show you that one next time.
I also made the girl's stitching into their birthday cards, I am so pleased with these I think they look very effective.

Saturday night was our friends Pete and Lesley's Silver Wedding party. We had a lovely time although Becky had hurt her back on Friday and was in pain by the end of the evening, she didn't even get up to dance...... But I did and here is the proof, me and Laura dancing - look I do have legs!!

And these are our friends on the left being made to do a silly dance in front of everyone! (Laura was one of the ring leaders!!)

Next is their daughter's wedding on June 6th, I have nearly finished Wedding Row I just have their names and the date to add. I think I will continue that this week along with my Family Tree so I can get it to the framers.

Sorry my sewing machince didn't come out on Sunday so I'll have to do my bell pull/hangers next weekend.

Have a good week.
